Enjoyable series. It does not have Rathbone, but it does have better production values than the Rathbone-Bruce series. Conway and Rathbone have very similar sounding voices.

I also enjoyed Tom Conway as Sherlock Holmes. He tends to make a number of small mistakes when reciting his dialogue, but these shows were enjoyable. I wish I could understand why he was replaced with John Stanley

Subject: Conway is a decent successor to Rathbone's Holmes
I agree with those who say that Tom Conway is a good radio Holmes even though he is not Rathbone. But after listening to some more of these episodes with Nigel Bruce I find that the Conway-Bruce series is almost like the Rathbone-Bruce years due to Green and Boucher staying on as the writers and continue to create some baffling and entertaining cases such as the Sally Martin, the Persecuted Millionaire, the Strange Death of Mrs. Abernetty, the Island of Death, the Ancient Egyptian Curse, the Elusive Emerald and the Adventure of Black Angus among others. Also the various supoorting radio actors also appeared on the Rathbone-Bruce series like Fredric Worlock as Lestrade, Mary Gordon as Mrs. Hudson, among others. Now I will admit that the blaring horn music intro is loud and kind of annoying. I much prefer the organ music from the previous 1945-1946 years. So Tom Conway is not exactly Basil Rathbone he is good due to Nigel Bruce's performance as Watson before he left the show and the series returned to the MBS.

Never having heard the Tom Conway "Holmes" adventures; it was a bit of a revelation to find them here...thoroughly enjoyable apart from the glaring brass instrumentation; very strange not to hear a plug for Blue Coal or Petrie Wines as in the Rathbone era. As a previous reviewer highlighted; Nigel Bruce' Watson isn't quite the buffoon of the movies or the Rathbone stories and all the better for it.

Subject: 470630 - The Adventure Of The Innocent Murderess is messed up
I enjoyed these Tom Conway episodes. He sounds somewhat like Basil Rathbone. The only negative aspect of the series, aside from several annoying Holmes - Watson interactions, is the blaring horn ensemble. The organ in the Rathbone series fostered calm transitions to and from the commercials.

Episode 470630 abruptly cuts off shortly after ten minutes, and a large chunk of The Speckled Band is inserted until time runs out. Hopefully the person who uploaded the Conway series has a means of correcting this error.

Subject: Not Basil but Tom not bad.
Not everyone cares for Tom Conway as Holmes but I found his Sherlock not bad at all. Nigel Bruce comes off as a more intellegent Watson...and gets top billing. All in all, a very satisfactory Holmes and Watson series.
